Countdown to Opening Day – 7 days
The number seven has appeared in some pretty big moments in Tribe history, including during some big playoff series for the club.
The 2007 season comes to a shocking and heartbreaking end for the Cleveland Indians as they lose their third straight ALCS game and are eliminated from the postseason by the Boston Red Sox in an 11-2 shellacking at Fenway Park.
The losses all came after the Indians took what appeared to be a commanding 3-1 lead in the series.
The Cleveland Indians clinch the American League pennant for the first time since 1954 by winning their third consecutive game over the Seattle Mariners. Dennis Martinez and two relievers combine on a four-hit shutout in a 4-0 win in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series.
The Cleveland Indians used six runs over the first three innings to roll to a 7-0 win over the Seattle Mariners in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series. The win tied the series at two wins each as the teams trade off wins.
The Cleveland Indians play their first postseason game since 2001, welcoming in the New York Yankees for Game 1 of the American League Division Series. They play the ungracious host, as a three-run first and a five-run fifth inning lead the way to an easy 12-3 victory.
